ICM Partners executives and agents who become available as a result of ICM being acquired by CAA have been aggressively pursued by APA. Hayes joins fellow ICM alums Brad Turell, chief communications officer, and Andrew Rogers, head of global talent, at APA.
The most exciting part of this move, according to Hayes, is that it will give my artists’ careers the best chance to succeed thanks to APA’s long history of touring and teamwork-based representation.
